Autumnal look 'seems drab in spring'
By the middle of April, women hanker after a spring look whatever the weather, an expert has commented.

Fashion commentator Emily Zak, writing for style bible Vogue, explained that during October, black tights and woolly jumpers can seem romantic but that by the spring months they seem dreary and dull.

As the blossom starts to unfurl, women want to dress in a similarly floaty and appealing way, she continued.

"It should be time to pack away tired winter clothes and wear the sandals and floral dresses I started buying in February," Ms Zak insisted.

It is certainly true that at the slightest hint of winter ending, women want to wear floaty dresses and skirts.

Unfortunately, pale legs and icy winds make this a difficult time of year for the fashion-conscious female.

Recently, Stacy London, host of What Not to Wear, told the Denver Post that nude hosiery is a perfectly good alternative to bare legs and that there are some "great" stockings available.

However, she cautioned legwear fans not to buy tights in bright orange as that suntanned look is dated.
